My first Chicago Marathon....as a spectator

I moved to Chicago over 3 years ago. This is the first time that I actually spectated the Chicago Marathon, and I live close to the route (shame on me!) Plus, I wanted to pay it forward for everyone who cheered me on last year. Seriously, the funny signs helped me keep going, so I made one of my own, staked out a spot by Marina City (it was pretty empty last year at that spot) and cheered and froze my fingers and my toes off while encouraging them and occasionally reminding them that they had about 25 miles to go. (insert evil laugh here)

I caught some bib numbers--if you find your bib number, I hereby grant you permission to save and print off the photo of you for personal use (gifts, etc) only.

If you want the original at a higher resolution, shoot me an email with the gallery number (ie, 21/36) so I know which one you want, and I will email the full resolution and uncropped version to you. My email is runningwithabookcart (at) gmail.com

Bib numbers in the following gallery: 920, 1289, 1584, 1588, 1883, 2031, 2424, 2483, 6821, 7115, 9609, 10104, 11354, 13424, 14431, 15572, 17449, 18388, 19244, 19956, 21076, 24526, 25603, 26279, 27002, 28481, 29175, 29309, 30387, 31697, 31813, 32538, 32935, 33472, 33810, 34317, 34998, 37457, 43934, 53013, 53014, 53016, 53028, 53030, 53044, 53060.
